Spring 2018

This term our topic is focusing on World War II. The children will be studying this great historical event from the perspective of the child. They will find out about how the war started and the impact on family life.

The children will immerse themselves in the events by imagining what an evacuee would have been through and how food rationing affected their diet. They will write letters and diaries in English, writing back to their family and cover the following topics in other areas of the curriculum; formulating a British History Timeline and showing where WW2 fits in, producing WW2 Propaganda Posters and how these were used as an effective tool for communication and cooking a food product to a wartime recipe.

For the first half term the topic of 'World war II' will encompass many different areas of the curriculum.
The jigsaw below shows what we will be covering in each subject.
